Ron Artest breaks up fight outside nightclub.

Posted by Matt Moore

Sometimes there's a policeman who can step in and take charge of the situation that's gotten out of control. Sometimes there's a sweet, kind, and gentle man who can try and soothe frayed nerves. Sometimes, there's a dude... and sometimes, there's Ron Artest. reports (and has video) of a confrontation between a man and a woman outside of an L.A. nightclub last weekend. Apparently both parties had too much to drink and wree going at it pretty viciously, physically, before Artest stepped in and separated the two.

Perhaps most impressive is Artest's form. He does a great job of boxing out, using his elbow and frame to separate the woman's desperate lunges from the man's face. New Lakers coach Mike Brown would be proud of how Artest maintained defensive position in this situation.

In all seriousness, it's just another case of Ron-Ron being Ron-Ron. Which means he could have separated them. He could have broke out a camera and filmed them. He could have just tweeted about seeing an elephant in a thong. But after talking to TMZ about the incident, he followed up with some friendly advice for the good people trying to handle their booze: 

Stop drinking so much when ur too tiny to handle ur liquor Only females should have excuse Not guys unless ur really a female

In Ron's name we pray, Amen.

I think the fact that Artest got himself involved and the result was not a giant brawl, but reason prevailing, is so shocking it's newsworthy. Artest might want to let the cops handle this next time. These are the kind of situations where we could just as easily be reading about him being shot by the guy's dirtbag friend in the background Ron-Ron didn't notice.
